4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Coming “As Early As September”, According to a Report


We’ve seen a number of rumors suggesting two new iPhones with larger displays to be in the pipeline of the Cupertino giant.

Now, according to a new report from a Japanese newspaper Nikkei, Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone 6 “as early as September” globally.

The newspaper pointed out that the new iPhone will be known as iPhone 6 and will be available with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes, going in-line with all the rumors we’ve come across in the past.

Suppliers of LCD panels for Apple’s new iPhone will ramp up production soon, in line with a timetable for a worldwide launch as early as September.

The new phone, expected to be called the iPhone 6, will likely be offered in 4.7- and 5.5-inch versions, both of which are larger than the current generation’s 4-inch screen.

Manufacturers have apparently begun making such components as fingerprint sensors and chips for liquid-crystal drivers.

This does bash all the rumors we have heard about the launch of the highly rumored iPhone 6 in summers, possibly in July. That did sound a little off as Apple usually unveils new iPhones near September.

As far as the specifications are concerned, Apple iPhone 5S is expected to be thinner than the iPhone 5S, with Apple A8 64-bit chip and an ultra retina display. Additionally, it’s also rumored to come with temperature, humidity and pressure sensor.

There’s no official word from Apple about the launch of the iPhone 6, and there won’t be until the company unveils it. So, let’s just take this report with a grain of salt, and we’ll update you if more information comes up.
